Seymour Performers Workshop donates for a good cause.April 24, 2014 3:08am
Seymour Health chief executive Chris McDonnell looks over plans for the new cancer/dialysis unit with Kilmore Art Show director Andrea Willis and Seymour Performers Workshop president Andrew Hogan.
Seymour Performers Workshop sang for their supper on April 12 at the opening of the Kilmore Art Expo — and it was for a great local cause.
Held each year by the Kilmore Art Society and the Rotary Club of Southern Mitchell, the Art Expo not only shows off the excellent art being produced in the district but donates proceeds to charities as well.
This year entertainment was provided by the cast of Downtown, a highly successful show for the Workshop in 2013 which revisited some of the hit songs of the 1960s for an appreciative audience.
The Rotary Club and Art Society also invited the performers to choose a worthy organisation to which they would make the 2015 donation.
‘‘It’s a great opportunity for us to give back to the community that supports us,’’ Seymour Performers Workshop president Andrew Hogan said.
‘‘Joining with Rotary and the Kilmore Art Society just goes to show what can be achieved by local groups working together.’’
The money raised — $1000 — went towards the planned cancer/dialysis services unit at Seymour District Memorial Hospital.
